(Scroll down for video) A man and his nephew are lucky to be alive after being pulled into a drain pipe.

A woman uploaded a video to the Internet, showing the heart stopping moment when her nephew and his uncle were sucked into the drain pipe.

The 9-year-old boy was sucked out of sight and the uncle disappeared after a few seconds later.

The video was recorded in Brazil. It shows the child and four men in a pool of muddy water. They attempted to clear plants and other debris that blocked the storm drain, which caused a backup.

The boy and his uncle were suddenly pulled underwater in front of horrified onlookers as the passageway cleared up.

Fortunately, moments later, the boy and his uncle emerged from the other end of the pipe, about 20 feet away.

The 9-year-old boy seemed to have been excited about his unexpected adventure. The two suffered only minor injuries.
